This book provides an overview of the holistic nursing approach, along with chapters on 20 commonly encountered chronic conditions, ranging from diabetes to sleep disorders. The interventions described for each condition include recommendations for diet, herbal supplements (if appropriate), and therapies such as accupressure, guided imagery, and stress management. Treatment planning emphasizes minimally invasive wellness approaches. Each chapter includes a specific example of a holistic nursing assessment, a collaborative treatment plan with a list of possible interventions, and a section on evaluating the effects of treatment.
